Big news!

Happy Fall!
The Woertman Family Scarecrows

I forget that some of you aren't on facebook or twitter so please forgive me if this is the first you're hearing this!

We are currently in the Due Diligence phase of our house selling! The buyer, a deployed solider who has only seen the house via video!, has until Oct 19 to back out. If we make it to that date, we feel confident in setting our "move across country plan" into action. We close on Oct 31. John will be able to transfer jobs easily and we will most likely drive my truck across country while a moving van takes the rest of our stuff.

We've started to pack already but will really kick it into gear on the 20th once we feel more settled. I don't how people do this selling a house stuff! It is extremely stressful not knowing for such a long period of time! We will be renting in Fresno until we decide which areas we want to settle in. It will be so wonderful to so close to family!! 2 hours to San Jose for my Dad, John's family and our friends! And 4 hours to Mandy & Seth! Can't beat it! See you all soon!!

I still thinking you should move to Prescott! I'm only a letter away from being family! :-)


During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
